Voted for the 400mm F4. I think this is very potential lens now they have the glass and parts for the 200-400 which it could share a lot of. Just a simple matter of a few adjustment and voila! Although I'm not so sure this would fit into my reasonable big white price thinking of £4500-£5000 judging on the price of the 200-400.

I think your price is in the right ball park.  The cost should be slightly lower than the 300mm f2.8L USM II IS.

Hmm, I saw this lens on ebay: http://www.canon.com/camera-museum/camera/lens/ef/data/standard_zoom/ef_35~135_4~56_usm.html

I think this range would be awesome for indoor sports/martial arts (like taekwondo) on a APS-C camera.
Can one hope for an EF-S 35-135 f2.8-4 USM?

I would buy it in an instant.

28-135?

18-135?

http://www.canon.co.uk/For_Home/Product_Finder/Cameras/EF_Lenses/Standard_Zoom/EF-S_18_135mm_f_3.5_5.6_IS_STM/

They are too slow for martial arts indoors. A constant 2.8 would be preferred, but I'll take a 2.8-4 for compactness (and price). 5.6 indoors when you want 1/500th of a second shutter speed or faster? Crazy ISO/noise. Maybe the 28-135 on the 6D would work, but then it would be too short.

What I'd most like to see is a line of EF-S prime lenses, starting with about a 14–18mm pancake.

Honestly, id love to see the 135 f/2 updated. I would LOVE to see the return of DO lenses, Got to use a 400 f/4 DO today and it was a joy, the contrast/color is a bit off but super easy to fix in post. The owner gave me a LR profile to use with the lens and it works great. I would DIE to see an updated 50 1.4 too, without IS and a 90 MM TS-E.

Longer ef-s primes won't happen because you can just plug a shorter ef lens and use it with the 1.6x crop factor, the smaller aps-c mirror is only an advantage for wide angle lenses.

As for wa/uwa ef-s prime, imho that won't happen either because ef-s is either for amateurs who are supposed to be happy with zooms or for people who want to use tele lenses for more reach...

50mm F/1.4 USM II

+1 ... but the reason why this didn't happen yet might be to protect the sales of the expensive 50/1.2, if the 50/1.4 gets any better with a "real" usm drive there'll be little reason to buy the good-bokeh mediocre-sharpness L - so probably they'll either replace both or none.

I don't understand why you all want those lenses. I would be satisfied with one, only. I need a 14-400 L IS USM f1.4 with TC 1.4 inside. But please not more than 500 grams. Thank you.  ::)

Just wait till Samyang brings the 10/2.8 UMC for APS-C ;)

Actually, I would be much more interested in 50/2 IS USM Macro, or even a cheap 50/1.8 STM. I think that the rest of Sigma's prime "jewels" (50/1.4 and 85/1.4) will be reborn into A series pretty soon, and only after that ... Canon will be forced to do something about it.
FF + primes !

Can we have ALL please ? (wishful thinking) ;D

Seriously though, that would be extremely bad for our wallets. It's better having each one every year or two (more wishful thinking)  ;D

+100000 !!!!

I would be interested but this lens' IQ has been controversial.

Some say it is very good, some not (some determine 2003 as the make year that made the difference.

I remember correctly at the-digital-picture site the 400DO didn't take the teleconverters well (IQ wise).
